Highly accurate face matching
SmartSelfie™ is designed for African faces: we have trained our machine learning algorithms on over 5M African faces to produce a 99.8% matching accuracy rate in real-time.
Ensures the user is taking the photo in real-time
We test for liveness by asking the user to smile at the camera. This ensures that the photo is taken with the user's camera and is of a living human being.
Protects against fake images
Our algorithm checks for spoof images from simple fakes, such as photos of printouts or other screens, to complex “deep fake” images to ensure the selfie is of the user behind the camera.
